Five country music tours for 2024 were announced or expanded this week. Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney are the two most famous artists dropping new live shows for next year, but there are several interesting newcomers joining them.

Aldean's 2024 Highway Desperado Tour picks up where he left off in 2024. It's also the title of his new album. Meanwhile, Chesney has grown his Sun Goes Down Tour by a third since announcing 18 stadium shows earlier in the fall.

The Top 40 Country Songs of 2023, Ranked

The best country songs of 2023 fit snugly over your life and experiences. Each is written from personal experiences, but somehow, translate as if they were custom to each of us.

We've loved, we've longed, we've lost and we've cut loose in the country.

Airplay charts, sales data and streaming numbers helped make this list of country music's Top 40 songs of 2023, but staff and Taste of Country reader opinion were most influential. Songs included on previous Top Country Songs lists were not eligible. A song may have been released in 2022, but it had to have the majority of recorded airplay or impact this year to count.
